Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
There are some home truths about forklift safety in Danny Maron's Safety First column this week. Most importantly, safety training is not just academic. Everyone needs to remember that there are lives at stake - and while forklifts can cause damage that's disruptive, they can also kill and maim. We often overlook the risks and many organisations see training as a burden. They probably just have to speak to management at a site which has had a forklift-related fatality to realise the real value of thorough training and a stringent safety regime. So let's be safe out there.

Fact of the week

The earliest known production of steel is seen in pieces of ironware excavated from an archaeological site in Anatolia and are nearly 4,000 years old, dating from 1800 BC. The main reasons for the popularity of steel are the relatively low cost of making, forming, and processing it, the abundance of its two raw materials (iron ore and scrap), and its unparalleled range of mechanical properties.
Semax, part of the Inev Group, is pleased to announce the recent signing of new agreements with three dealers in Europe, with a focus on strengthening the organisation and optimising its innovative forklift portfolio.
